GTP is a good car, SC'd 3800. You will miss the ride and comfort of the Bonneville, but good luck with the GP

My husband and I traded my 2002 Grand Am and his 97 GP GTP for our 2000 bonne'*. His is black and mine is silver. Both are fully loaded, and we wouldn;t have it any toher way.

alot more possibilities for modifications though exterior wise! ..if i had a GP i'd get a nice body kit to complement my 3800 */C There'* a couple to choose from also. There'* also more bolt on products where theres less custom stuff. Both cars are superb ..bonne is just classy though.

how do you rice a GTP? my understanding of rice is all show, no go.....but even if you painted your GTP ummm like turd brown and put yellow dots on it to look like corn....it would still be fast.
